Pros

Useful organization: Uninstaller categorizes your installed apps into several tiers: Recently installed, Large programs, Infrequently used, and Windows Updates. These are often the main criteria that most users would follow to justify removing apps.

Batch uninstallation: You can queue up uninstallations for multiple applications, something glaringly absent from the traditional Windows control panel. Though it's not an automated procedure, nor is it a simultaneous uninstaller, the Batch Uninstaller works as listed and is one of the most useful features of IOBit Uninstaller 3.

Cons

Not in real time: If IOBit Uninstaller is currently running and you install a new program, the Programs list will not refresh. This requires you to restart the program for the most up-to-date list of applications.

Final Verdict:

IOBit Uninstaller 3 is a lightweight uninstaller with some useful tools that give it an edge over the default Windows uninstaller. Batch uninstallation and its remnant removal tools are probably the application's biggest advantage, but overall we found this program to be most useful for those who have high volumes of applications and programs installed. We recommend this app if your computer is in need of a slimming down or if you're planning to do some fall freshening of your Windows machine.

Developer's Description

IObit Uninstaller 10 is a perfect uninstallation tool. It provides an easy and secure way to thoroughly remove unwanted programs, Windows Apps, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, and malicious/ad plugins, giving you a clean PC and a secure & smooth online surfing experience.

As the first uninstall utility that comes up with the idea of bundleware removal, IObit Uninstaller has further optimized the algorithm to better detect bundleware at the very time when they are installed, which allows users to uninstall all bundleware more conveniently and timely.

Other features in IObit Uninstaller are also wonderful. Real-time Install Monitor detects and logs changes made to your system during a program installation, which allows you to see what changes the monitored programs did during the installation. It is worth mentioning that Install Monitor newly supports monitoring system services, scheduled tasks, and DLL registration. Meanwhile, Software Health helps optimize all installed software to make them run smoother and also reduces security risks. Moreover, it newly supports blocking browser site notification prompts from interrupting you. With the enhanced scan engine and greatly expanded database, IObit Uninstaller can remove more stubborn programs and malicious/ad plugins, and ensure all leftovers to be removed thoroughly from the computer just like they've never existed. It also supports removing Windows apps under non-administrator accounts and the latest UWP apps on Windows 10 to free up more storage space. What's more, the optimized Software Updater now supports updating multi-language versions of some popular programs, like Firefox, WinRAR, and Mozilla Thunderbird.

All in all, IObit Uninstaller 10 is an all-in-one uninstallation utility to uninstall software, bundleware, browser extensions, and Windows Apps for a clean and safe PC.
